The odor became pronounced. One

no question of the source of the odor.

The troubles of most women, who
are delicate, arise from simple lack of
strength. The most obvious way to
help them Is to give them a remedy
which will bring them the particular
strength they lack.
Cardul's success, In benefiting and
curing sick and ailing women, Is due
to the fact that It gives women
strength, where they most need It.
Being composed exclusively of vege-
table Ingredients, which act gently
and sympathetically upon special
organs, It Is a tonic which Is at once
regulating, and rebuilding.
Fifty years of success prove that
this is fact. Try Cardui today.

For Proper Care of Tuberculosis.
According to the National Associa-
tion for the Study and Prevention of
Tuberculosis, New York state leads
in the number of beds for consump-
tives provided up to May 1, with 5,476
beds; Massachusetts is second with
2,403 beds; Pennsylvania, third, with
2,347 beds; Colorado, fourth, with 1,489
beds; and New Mexico fifth, with
1,104 beds. As yet, not one state in
the country has made adequate pro-
vision for its consumptives. New
York has set itself the task of having
"No uncared-for tuberculosis in 1915,"
and several cities in other parts of
the conntry have adopted similar pro-
grams. The national association
says that tuberculosis will not be
Btamped out until all cases of this
disease are cared for either in their
homes or in institutions. With this
end in view, efforts will be made to
increase the number of hospital beds
in this country to at least 35,000 by
May 1, 1911.

Medicine Not Needed In This Case.
It is hard to convince some people
that ooffee does them an Injury! They
lay their bad feelings to almost every
cause but the true and unsuspected
But the doctor knows. His wide ex-
perience has proven to him that to
some systems, coffee is an insidious
poison that undermines the health.
Ask the doctor if coffee is the cause
of constipation, stomach and nervous
"I have been a coffee drinker all
my life. I am now 42 years old and
when taken sick two years ago with
nervous prostration, the doctor said
that my nervous system was broken
down and that I would have to give
up coffee.
"I got so weak and shaky I could
not work, and reading your advertise*
inent of Postum, I asked my grocer if
he had any of it. He said: 'Yes,' and
that he used it in his family, and it
was all it claimed to be.
"So I quit coffee and commenced to
use Postum steadily and found in
about two weeks' time I could sleep
soundly at night and get up in the
morning feeling fresh. In about two
months I began to gain flesh. I
weighed only 146 pounds when I com-
menced on Postum, and now I weigh
167 and feel better than I did at 20
years of age.
"I am working every day and sleep
well at night. My two children were
great coffee drinkers, but they have
not drank any since Postum came Into
the house, and are far more healthy
than they were before."

claring Oklahoma City the permanent
and Immediate seat of state govern-
In his letter to Attorney J. H. Bur-
ford of the Guthrie capital commit-
tee, the governor states that his ac-
tion in aproving the removal of the
capital is entirely within the law and
the rights of the people. He stands
at all times willing and ready to give
any complainants a hearing, as speci-
fied in the letter, and states that any
and all business conducted by the
state officers in Guthrie Is illegal
Oklahoma City being the state capi
tal, as a majority of the voters so
declared 'Saturday, June 11.
"No official proclamation is needed
in this case," said the governor. In
speaking of the open letter issued
**I have not mentioned Shawnee be-
cause I do not believe Its citizens
will have any rpejudice. Under the
law Oklahoma City is the state cap-
ital and I have simply done my duty
I am ready and willing at any and
all times to give the people of Guth
rie a hearing, and I have so specified
in my letter."
Stirring scenes both at Oklahoma
City and Guthrie marked the day af-
ter the election. Sund&y night Sher-
iff J. W. Ma'noney, of Guthrie, armed
with papers against the governor tc
prohibit his taking any steps in the
removal of the state offices, were
made out and the Logan county of
ficial attempted to serve them.
Meeting the governor in the bal-
cony of the hotel, the sheriff made a
step forward to 'hand the papers to
the executive, when the governor
snatched them from his hands and
threw t'nem on the floor. There was
no disturbance and it was all over *n
less than a minute, the Logan coun-
ty official retiring quietly.
The trouble with Mahoney started
Saturday night, when he put an armed
guard around the state offices In
Guthrie to prevent any attempt at re-
moval of state records. Somewhat
angered, Governor Haskell ordered
the state militia, in command of Gen-
eral Canton, to arrest the sheriff and
put him in jail and disarm the guard
The situation in the city Monday
was unparalleled in history of the na-
tion. Within one night a state capi
tal is transferred from one city to an-
other. Wlth'n one day after an elec-
tion scenes have been enacted whicl
are of world-wide interest.
In Guthrie , the deposed capital,
many Incidents are beyond descrip
tion. Around the state offices throng-
ed the incensed citizens, watching
the armed guards of the sheriff, eager
for the opportunity to see removal of
records started injunctions were
issued against every member of the
state staff and orders issued to eerve
them Immediately.
Apparently more interest was mani-
fested in the capital than in the pro-
posed railroad amendment fight. The
former led by nearly 25,000 votes.
The proposed amendment received its j
heaviest vote in the First and Third
congressional districts.

,ate returns from Shawnee gave
that city 4,140 votes for Itself for the
capital, against 383 for Oklahoma
City, and 88 for Guthrie. The capital
bill was defeated by a vote of 4,135
to 799, and the railroad proposition
carried by 2,778 to 1,929. Shawnee's
total official vote will approximate
Tulsa county gave the bill a small
majority, thus indicating a remarkable
revolution in sentiment there within
the last few days. The city of Tulsa
ten days ago was set against the
bill. Twenty-one precincts out of 31
in Logan county shows the following
returns: Capital location, 282: against
4,562; Oklahoma City. 206; Shawnee,
16; Guthrie, 4,072. For amendment,
1,595; against, 2,852. Thfrs includes
nine of the ten precincts in the city
of Guthrie.
It is notable that while a heavy
vote was cast against the bill In the
First congressional district, that 1*
which Guthrie is situated, several
counties gave Oklahoma City a big
majority. This Is true In Lincoln,
Pawnee, Kay, Grant and some other
counties. The stress of Guthrie and
Shawnee efforts was against the bill,
and in some of the counties of their
sections they won a partial victory.
Osage county gave Oklahoma City a
good vote, while Garfield county went
heavily against it.
The total vote approximated 160,-
000. The Fourth and Fifth Congre
slonal districts, true to the reputation
they made in promise, rolled up heavy
majorities for Oklahoma City. There
were some surprises in the Third dis-
trict. Mayes county turned a tide o!
opposition that had set in before the
first of the series of capital debate!
and gave the metropolis a surprising
ly large vote. Of the 2,433 votes cast
in Le Flore county, 2,196 were for thf
bill. Ten days ago Washington coun-
ty was against the bill, but a remark-
able change of sentiment took place,
It was generally admitted that aa
opposing organization in Muskogee
county had set a large majority of
the electors of the county against thf
capital bill. Governor Haskell's Fri-
day night speech in that city and th«
efforts of his friends Saturday saved
hundreds of voteg to the bill.
Grady county gave the bill nearly a
two-to-one vote, in spite of the fact
that resolutions condemning the bill
were purported to have been passed
by cortain organizations in that coun*
ty. Here the labor vote asserted ifr
self, ag it did in other counties.

The Rude Visitor.
There is a story about the secretary
of a golf club who was a man of di-
minutive stature. It was summer time,
and the grass had been allowed to
grow rather long. The secretary was
playing in front of a visitor who was
a very long driver, and kept dropping
his ball in the neighborhood of the
secretary all the way round. At last
tho little man could stand It no longer
and walked back and remonstrated
with the visitor on his conduct, but
the only reply he got was, "If you
would cut the grass, one might bo
